    Default Corsair RM850 2019 review @ Tomshardware

    Corsair's line of RMx power supplies are renowned for their compact dimensions and quiet operation, but not their low prices. With an MSRP of $119.99 (£109.99), the new Corsair RM850 promises similar performance and acoustics to the more-expensive RM850x, but at a more affordable price point. However, to cut costs, Corsair has used lower-quality capacitors and a lesser cooling fan. These compromises result in a PSU that's not quite as quiet as its big brother, but could be a good choice if the street price is significantly lower

    Actually not a problem for me, but why the label isn't styled the same way as the other current models? It will look like a knock-off for the unknowing.

    Agree, and previous label looked better.

    Because that IS the new style label.

    All the packaging from 2019 forward got a reboot.

    To address one of the points in the summary:

    Corsair has used lower-quality capacitors
    They're not lower quality capacitors. They're just not Japanese branded. Lower quality capacitors would be using a Teapo bulk cap instead of Elite or Su'scon.

    Why did you move away from the Corsair fan this time?

    Yes. This doesn't replace anything. This is more like a product for system integrators that need to meet the new requirements but also need to have a lower-cost.
